  • I used to think they were, but now it's the blacks coming at the whites, I don't know if it's b/c Obama is in office or what exactly ( I like Obama by the way) but blacks are just as successful as anyone, they have the same things if not more than other races, they get special grants, and privialges in many ways. Question pertaining about the beating, that happens everyday everywhere to all races. People need to quit making such issues about Race, and see the situations as Individaul Occurances, thnigs that happens to one happens also to another no matter the race.

  • *sigh* How depressing. Kids can't even be safe of school buses, and the kids who did it will probably won't care that they are suspended. Not much of a punishment, IMO.

  • No and as long as this plan is in operation there will be no peace between races.

    Excerpt:
    We have set one against another the personal and national reckonings of the GOYIM, religious and race hatreds, which we have fostered into a huge growth in the course of the past twenty centuries.

  • i have never seen such racism.its sad.

    Now you get it. This is how black people have felt all these years. Not saying its right, but i think most white people never experienced racism therefore were quick to say that we need to "GET OVER IT" or were imagining things. I think things are getting worse now. Between blacks and whites. Which is a good thing. It takes for things to get worse before they get better. We are living in the worse days now.
